what is your macro breakdown of fat,pro,cabs?

Your metabolsim has probably crashed. It might be in your best interest to eat at maint. cals for a week or two, and then get back into the diet with more than 1500-1600 calories. Doing a weekly refeed might be helpful as well.

Same thing happens to me. For me i lose 5 pounds on a cut and then i hit the wall. The way i fix this is for the next week or so I eat to maintain, to get my metabolism back to normal. then after that week i have no problem losing more, give it a try. You could try cycling your calories but alot of people told me that its a waste of time.

2000 calories is not a lot of food, you need to eat more.
